"Never let others tell you what you are capable of, just keep working hard at what you've set your mind too. It may not happen right away, but eventually you can get it done."-Tom Brady

It’s staying late after practice

To become better.
When game day comes,

Opponents are not friends.
Wearing the jersey to school on game day,

Knowing players by jersey numbers,

Not concentrating in class,

Grass stains, dirty clothes, raspberries, sweat,

It’s having nine sisters,

Intense parents in the stands,

Screaming offense and coaches,

Winding the pitch, swinging the bat,
Grilled hotdogs, eye black, smiles, tears,
This is my life.
This is softball.
The game I love.
